Amazon Publishing buys 1,000 titles from defunct Dorchester
"Amazon Publishing has acquired about 1,000 romance, Western and horror titles from defunct publisher Dorchester’s backlist. Amazon will pay Dorchester authors any outstanding royalties and divide the books among its various West Coast imprints."
"Going forward, the acquired Dorchester titles will be published under the appropriate Amazon Publishing imprints: Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror titles to 47North; Romance titles to Montlake Romance; Mystery and Thriller titles to Thomas & Mercer; Westerns and other titles to AmazonEncore. Titles will be available both in print and as Kindle books. Under the terms of Amazon’s bid, any former Dorchester Publishing authors that chose not to work with Amazon Publishing will have their rights revert back to them to pursue other publishing opportunities including self-publishing via the Kindle Direct Publishing platform."
Dorchester was pretty much THE place for horror for the past decade so it'll be nice to (hopefully) see many of those titles back in print.

I am happy to know that one of my favorite authors, Brian Keene, will finally get paid the royalties from the novels that I so enjoyed.

Referring to his blog - I don't think it matters what shows on the website of the product at Amazon. I believe it's just an error of some kind. If you look in the book itself it shows the publisher as Deadite.

It's still a misleading error, especially in light of who benefits from the error (and it could have been worse but it's not), so it's a wait-and-see.
Amazon has acted as both malicious and incompetent in the past. Hopefully it's the latter in this case (and that it gets resolved soon).
